There it was again. The huge threshold, which I longed to pass and did not now how.
Shiny, promising, golden.
Yes. The threshold was literally golden. It's been 2 years since I've worked with leaf gold for the last time and although I LOVE this material, I didn't dare to work with it since then. I built too many "but" and "what if" and a perfected procastrination into an almost impregnable barrier.
What would be helpful in such a situation?
Listen to encouraging talks, to motivational speeches? Remind myself that I've learned in once and it will be easy again? Noticing that others can do it too?
No. Not helpful at all!
Go back to zero and start learning again. So I did. With a wonderful help by my side who walked me through the different steps and showed me how to do it again.
And today? Do I consider the threshold to be smaller?
Definitely! After completing some the very successful samples I would even claim that the threshold shrinked to a normal "working height". Because with each gold plated piece of jewelry, the anxiety changed into joy and the knowledge came back into my hands. And finally, I can answer the request for offering gold plated jewelry with a clear "YES"!
Now I'm curious! What is your threshold you could use some practical and tangible help with?
